Heal, Reflect, Build: Movement for Black Lives to Hold Historic Gathering



Confusing. "Black lives matter" implies that the lives of the rest of us don't matter. (The reaction is predictable.) America has also decided that the lives of the poor don't matter, and we have stripped them of the most basic human and civil rights. What are we to think, then, about someone who is black and poor?


It is incredibly important to build this movement and gain political and ethical clout. Oppressors rely on the vulnerability and societal invisibility of the oppressed. I respect the #Black Lives Matter movement and wish its leadership the best. RIP Sandra Bland.
